GlogauAIR resident from July 2019 to September 2019
Since I was a child, I liked drawing and was so happy I could express myself through paintings. I like to be interested in new spaces, things and people, and to experience new experiences and activities. I have volunteered at the Seoul Olympic Museum in my early 20s. During that time, I became interested in new ﬁelds. I was a photographer and looked at the world through photography and got a lot of inspiration. And naturally, I got the chance to major in photography at university. I also had various experiences, such as as a lecturer at an art school, a stage artist, a publisher and illustrator. Such a time has been very helpful in my creative work. I am more active now and ready to accept everything in a new culture, play and discourse.
A picture diary
November 01, 2017 – the memories left in my head disappear. Suddenly, unrecognized memories crush me and shave off my ﬂesh. It repeats appearing and annoying me repeatedly. I give a time of awakening to look back on me.
November 25, 2017 – everything is a Chaos. The rules I have set are disappearing. Darkness surrounds me and I can not see the sign of recovery.
Dec 01, 2017 – desire is attraction. Derivation of desire is natural. The habit of desire is irregular and non-religious. Desire is alive. Existence itself and exists in any hall.
January 10, 2018 – Everything feels strange. I think I’m behind the back of something. I think I’m trapped behind a door without a handle. No, maybe now I suddenly found out I was here from the start. It’s dark. Everything is crushed in the dark.
April 13, 2018 – Breath -> Air -> The bottom of the ground after rain -> The water -> The sky, the earth and the sea come together. (Like small particles of air) -> The number 0 changes to a non-numeric meaning (0 for inﬁnite meaning schizophrenia 0 for the beginning phase) -> There is a hole around each. -> Your own persona is formed.

Project proposal: occupying a stronghold.
Planning background: The stress of long distance couples is not often seen.
So the places and events we meet are very important.
The area we meet is related to art, and we often book accommodation in the vicinity.
Naturally, we became interested in the center of the motel and hotel.
Purpose: It was the interior and objects and a few bottles of beverage and water that were of interest. It is more realistic that the stationary objects and colorful and lavish lighting that are placed like a still life are in a secret space.
Focusing on it, we tried new thinking about space while transforming and manipulating our own base.
Title Description: By transforming a speciﬁc space into another space, audiences feel the confusion of the perception.
The artist wants to express the intrinsic nature of contemporary art as a transformation of space or a virtual space that the audience wants to directly experience and convey. In that sense, the slogan “occupying a stronghold” came up.
1. Make use of the ofﬂine exhibition space as much as possible.
2. Organize effective exhibitions with minimum budget.
3. Promote the exhibition with customized promotional strategies and activities.
4 . To explore the possibility of linking projects with the achievements of exhibitions and programs.
Planning Meaning: There is an existing gallery, museum, and an alternative space image. I want to re-establish the image. It is fascinated by the image of private, secret space.
The obsession gives birth to illusions and, therefore, tries to replace the virtual space with a private, secret space. The space will be a public space or a space that many people can easily reach.
We want to create a space by replacing the private, private and secret space with the symbol of motel, adding ﬁctional imagination and enthusiasm to it.
As a result, we can feel the intricacy which is one of the attributes of contemporary art by directly experiencing the transformation of space to the audience.
1. The motel and the hotel are extended to a place where everyone can easily access and relax. An open space – not a secret and private space – for example, it is a convenience store installed on the uninhabited island. Convenience stores are available to everyone and are used repeatedly every day for 24 hours. What we hope is that everyone can easily access and share with each other.
2. I plan to make a poster or ﬂyer by re-editing using the space of a motel that is not universal.
3. Representations and symbols of delusion emphasize the occupation of space by organizing it with a new phrase with a banner.
